When exporting my videos the file sizes are coming up at around 100mb. I've around 50 videos to fit on 1 DVD.

Does anyone know how to reduce the file size? Is there a free converter? I've tried going from Large to Medium but it's not as great as I'd hoped.

Any ideas?

Hopefully I've posted this in the right section. Sorry if I haven't.

The videos are around 7 minutes at most. It's an educational DVD.

Can this converter reduce the file size? I'm new to iDVD and not sure what formats it accepts or which are smaller.

I think you are trying to fit too much onto one disc, or are you using DL?

You can adjust the quality in iDVD Project Preferences.

This should definitely fit on a DVD. I've taken the footage from an existing disc. I needed to add a 4 second title screen to each video.

Once you import the files to iDVD, try adjusting the quality from Project preferences.
